This is a poem I wrote a few years ago:
Confusion on capitol hill,
Years of spending and now we see the bill.
Some politicians with great intentions,
Some inventors with great inventions.
Some thinkers with great plans,
But many with greedy hands. Health care, medicare.
Rising debts, unwise bets.
Little regulation, a consumerist nation.
In a hole and trying to climb out,
Except unsure about how to win this bout.
Efficiency and growth must be our focus,
Can't fix it with rhetoric, wishing, and hocus pocus.
Lower our nation's debt,
That would be a safe bet.
Increase confidence in where we're going,
And the employed crowd will start growing.
Economic thinking and analysis isn't easy,
And it may not be the most appeasing,
And debtor nations.
It must be done, however,
If we don't want to sink, whenever,
Difficult winds blow our way.
